I am a Professor of General Paediatrics. My interests include young people, babies and acting as a primary care paediatrician for some families. I also speak some Turkish. I have 30 years experience and am often asked for second opinions. My golden rule is the Mother is always right (and sometimes us Dads!)
Hi, My name is Quinn. I am 8 years old and I am grateful that Prof Sutcliffe is my doctor. I went to him for the first time 2 years ago when I fell and got a severe concussion. I was very scared and so were my parents, but he was so nice and helped me stay calm (and my Mommy). Now I go to him every time I need a doctor or a check up. I never want to go to another doctor. He talks to me like I am a big kid and even gives me great suggestions about life and growing up. My parents say he is "the best referral they have ever received." I saw him last week when I lost my voice. He told me to take this medicine for 3 days and I'd be better. He was right! He is so nice and he doesn't hurt at all when he gives shots either. Sheryl in his office is super nice and helpful too. Thanks Prof! You're cool! Quinn C.
Professor A. Sutcliffe is an amazing doctor. He really takes the time to listen to your concern and is extremely understanding and helpful. He is always smiling and my children felt comfortable and safe around him. He always fully explains any procedure/referral in great details. Definitely would recommend him to anyone!
I have two children 10 and 5. We have met Professor Alastair Sutcliffe in A&E in UCH with two of his students. I had to write this review to say that in my 10 years experience it was the BEST assessment. Great experience, so glad that he shares his knowledge and experience with students.
Professor Sutcliffe has been a total life saver for me. Being a rather anxious parent when it comes to my children's health, he has been nothing but reassuring, patient and kind. I have taken all of my three children to see Prof Sutcliffe and on each occasion, he has been very thorough, clear and ultimatley reassuring. Most recently, following a diagnosis of a heart murmur for my newborn baby, he answered frantic emails from myself within the hour and helped me through a difficult period. Cannot recommend highly enough.
Professor Sutcliffe is the perfect paediatrician. I just can’t praise him highly enough. My daughter’s epilepsy diagnosis of came as a huge shock and Professor Sutcliffe walked us through the process of finding the right medication and diagnosis with care and attention. We never felt like a bother to him and he always took the time to explain both sides of any decision or situation clearly and without dumbing down. He was always realistic without being pessimistic and his knowledge, not just of we condition but of the other issues related to it was just wonderful and so reassuring. The hardest part to put into words is how much it meant to me that he treated both of us as whole people, not poorly functioning body parts. He recognised how my daughter’s epilepsy impacted all the different areas of her life and helped us to work out a way forward. He supported my daughter to take ownership of her health and to see that she did have a future. I cannot thank him enough.
